Possessions that have been placed in storage facilities can be harmed by severe cold or hot weather. Electronics, computer equipment, photographs, clothing, books, artwork, wood or leather furniture, important documents for your business or home and other valuable items can all be destroyed if they have not been properly protected.
If the area in which you live or where your storage facility is located has these kinds of weather conditions then it is vital to choose a storage facility that uses climate control in order to store your valuable business or personal items. Climate controlled storage facilities maintain a steady temperature of between 55 and 80 degrees through the use of heat and central air conditioning.
Having a controlled environment in which to store your valuable items cuts down on the risk of rust; yellowing and corrosion; infestation from termites, wasps, mice and other vermin; warping, cracking and splitting; and an overgrowth of mold, mildew and bacteria. Climate controlled storage facilities are usually part of a building that has indirect cooling and heating – as against facilities that have heaters or air conditioners – with their enclosed environment also offering additional protection from dirt, dust and flooding.
One of the most important factors you need to consider when choosing a climate controlled storage facility is your geographical area. Generally speaking, the temperature of a storage facility that is climate controlled should never go below freezing or go over 90 degrees.
